Winemaker Notes
Our 2012 blend possesses the pretty pink/coppery hue that has come to define this wine. The aromas are fresh and enticing with notes of watermelon, grapefruit, and hints of fresh strawberries. It is medium bodied with crisp acidity and juicy raspberry flavors and a lingering finish of tart cranberry. ~ Mark R. Lyon, Winemaker
Food Pairing Notes
This wine is a perfect pairing with BBQ chicken flatbread pizza garnished with fresh cilantro and sautéed shallots.

Production Notes
The Grenache portion of our 2012 Eye of the Swan came from a lovely hillside vineyard in the Santa Ynez Valley region of Santa Barbara County. The Grüner Veltliner came from a site in the cool Sta. Rita Hills AVA. The 2012 growing season was ideal, to say the least. The warm temperatures and mellow winds enhanced vine growth and quickened ripening. The vintage came out superior with high yields and great quality fruit. The unusual combination of Grenache, Grüner Veltliner, and small amounts of Syrah yields an incredibly aromatic, lusciously rich vin gris. After whole cluster pressing, the wine was tank fermented and prevented from undergoing malolactic fermentation to retain crisp acidity and fresh fruit aromas. Each varietal was fermented separately and blended upon completion.
